Sophia & Maya's B'nai Mitzvah! {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

March 15, 2017 · Events

Mazel tov to two amaaaazing young women!! Each of these girls learned an entire book of Talmud (in Hebrew) in preparation for their Bat Mitzvah!!! I can hardly even wrap my head around this task. I’ve had the honor of photographing this family for years now, so it was truly special to see them reach this important milestone. Here are some highlights from their weekend!

One of the most fun and different parts of the party was the Master Chef-style BAKE OFF!!!

Notice the extreme difference between Team 2 with mostly girls (above) and Team 7 with all boys (below).

At the end of the night, everyone put their arms around each other and sang and danced together.

Mazel Tov David & Family! {St. Louis Bar Mitzvah Photographer}

December 21, 2016 · Events

It’s taken me all day to get this blog uploaded with all the distractions from my children being on winter break, but I finally finished it!! I’ve known David and his mom since my daughter (who’s David’s age) and David were in Kindergarten together, so I’ve had the pleasure of watching him grow up for the last eight years. I was also able to take his 1st and 2nd grade school portraits, as well as some family portraits of him and his mom on Laclede’s Landing, so it was great to have another chance to capture some memories on his Bar Mitzvah weekend a few weeks ago! Mazel Tov to David, Mom, Dad, Mom #2, little brothers, and everyone else who celebrated this great day!!

Mazel Tov Sam! {St. Louis Bar Mitzvah Photographer}

November 15, 2016 · Events

I really wanted to share some of my favorite moments from Sam’s Bar Mitzvah, so, even though they are a little late, here they are! Sam is truly such a kind person. It is not only apparent by the way he led services and read from the Torah on his Bar Mitzvah last month, but also in the way he treats his sister and interacts with his parents with such gentleness and love.

I’m so excited to share these images of two incredibly inspirational, strong, compassionate, joyful, loving, and powerful women!!! Winalee and Caroline are Nia Black Belt Trainers, and I had the privilege of earning my Brown Belt with them in Michigan at the end of July. I love them both so much, and I hope you can see how wonderful they are through these moments I was able to capture with them.

Mazel tov Charlie and Family! {St. Louis Bar Mitzvah Photographer}

April 7, 2016 · Events

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard how fast time goes by when you’re watching children grow up, but it still shocks me when I see kids in my community who seemed so little just a couple of years ago becoming B’nai Mitzvah! I remember when Charlie was much shorter and both of his sisters were just babies. It was a joy and an honor to experience services led by this mature and kind young man. flamingo-bowl-bar-mitzvah-photographer (1) flamingo-bowl-bar-mitzvah-photographer (2) flamingo-bowl-bar-mitzvah-photographerflamingo-bowl-bar-mitzvah-photographer (4)flamingo-bowl-bar-mitzvah-photographer (3)flamingo-bowl-bar-mitzvah-photographer (5) flamingo-bowl-bar-mitzvah-photographer (6) flamingo-bowl-bar-mitzvah-photographer (7)
